Lipstick On a Pig Icon

Ever wanted to call out changes that only attempt to pretty things up without addressing the real cause of the problems? In those cases, I've found the phrase "lipstick on a pig" to be useful. But, even if I might not get away with actually using it, I've wished I had a nice official stamp or something to slap on things around the office. For those with a similar desire, I present this icon.

 

For those that don't know the phrase "lipstick on a pig", it refers to changing something only superficially: hiding something of poor, unchanged substance behind a pretty, new surface. The longer phrase is "if you put lipstick on a pig, it's still a pig".
